The 49th Daytime Emmy Awards took place last night at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California, with the first in-person ceremony in two years.

It was a star-stubbed event that brought together the best of the best in the daytime industry. Stars of Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and Beyond Salem put their glam on for a fun night full of celebration and love.

Days of our Lives legend John Aniston earned the Lifetime Achievement Award for playing Victor Kiriakis on the hit NBC soap opera for 37 years. John’s long-time costar Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) introduced the award and his daughter, actress Jennifer Aniston. Jennifer praised her father’s distinguished career.

History was made at the Daytime Awards when The Young and the Restless beauty Mishael Morgan became the first Black woman to win lead actress in a drama series. Mishael earned a standing ovation as she took the stage and gave a powerful speech.
